He hit the music mainstream with his first album “Music Voyager,” which thrust him into the spotlight as the Best New Artist of Golden Melody Awards in 2004.
The award kicked off his music career and the multi-talented productive star has released a further 12 albums since, including “Haven,” “No. 89757,” “Westside,” “She Says,” “Stroies Untold” and “Message in a Bottle.”
He has gained international fame through several classics from his albums, such as “I’m the One,” “Freeze,” “Flying on Your Wings,” “Simple” and “Sanctuary.”
And last year, Lin collaborated with Luis Fonsi and recreated a new version of the hit “Despacito.”
The first stop of the world tour is Shanghai, before he visits another 24 cities in China, such as Nanjing, Wuhan, Xi’an, Hong Kong and Taipei. Lin will then travel to Australia, Malaysia and his homeland Singapore.
